A group of friends have their lives turned upside down when they find themselves placed as the last line of defense between the everyday world and the things that go bump in the night.

This actual play podcast uses Monster of the Week and other Powered by the Apocalypse games, all within the same dimension hopping narrative, to follow the Indiana Paranormal Task-force (IPT) as they are thrust into the front lines of a battle they didn't know existed.

Awesome podcast. Started listening as I wanted an actual play of Dungeon World with a transcript as I can't always listen. But then got hooked and now am going back through all their first season of Monster of the Week. Great to listen to - high quality audio, editing and production but still an actual game without people just trying to make jokes. Really good rhythm and great for getting you interested in the game. Some good humour and fantastic plots, pacing, twists and more. Great chemistry between the 4 of them - they make it seem so easy but then you realise they've been performing together for 17 or so years and it really pays off. Overall really slick and just fantastic entertainment. A really passionate enthusiastic crew and you can't help but root for them. Highly recommend (all the way from NZ).
The CritshowWe love hearing all the different paths that bring people to the show - welcome, Maymweaver, and thanks so much for the kind and thoughtful sentiments! It's true we've all been together for a while,…
The Critshow is one of my favourite actual play podcasts! The story goes much deeper than what I initially expected, which is great! I love the interaction of the players with each other and the DM and how their character arcs unfold. Captivating and worth every minute!
The CritshowAw, thank you, Bamboori! We try really hard to make sure there's depth and heart to the story, as well as a good, fun time. So glad you're appreciating it!
Such a great podcast, literally the only one I listen to on the day its released and then desperately wait for the next episode. Rev is a great Keeper, and together with Tass, Teej, and Jake they create such a rich, interesting world for us to listen to with nice crisp audio. They weave together humor and deep emotions, excellent in-character discussions, and so many twists and turns as to keep things always fresh. I also enjoy when they play new games, allowing us to get a nice snapshot into these games without getting bogged down. This was this podcast that finally convinced me to go out and buy the Monster of the Week rulebook and decide to run my own games for the first time ever. Never thought I would be holding my breath waiting for a roll result while not actually playing!
The CritshowThank you so much! The let's plays are so much fun - and we have a blast helping folks experience new games. Glad you've started running your own game!
